SHAKESPEARE, “NEGUTATORUL DIN VENETIA”

SATIRA IMPOTRIVA EVREILOR: 1. “BASSANIO. If it please you to dine with us. SHYLOCK. Yes, to smell pork, to eat of the habitation which / your prophet, the Nazarite, conjured the devil into! I will buy / with you, sell with you, talk with you, walk with you, and so / following; but I will not eat with you, drink with you, nor / pray” (actul 1, scena 3) 2. “SHYLOCK. I hate him for he is a Christian; / But more for that in low simplicity / He lends out money gratis, and brings down / The rate of usance here with us in Venice. / If I can catch him once upon the hip, / I will feed fat the ancient grudge I bear him. / He hates our sacred nation; and he rails, / Even there where merchants most do congregate, / On me, my bargains, and my well-won thrift, / Which he calls interest. Cursed be my tribe / If I forgive him!” (actul 1, scena 3) 3. “ANTONIO. [Aside] Mark you this, Bassanio, / The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose. / An evil soul producing holy witness / Is like a villain with a smiling cheek, / A goodly apple rotten at the heart. / O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath!” (actul 1, scena 3) 4. “SHYLOCK. (…) Be nominated for an equal pound / Of your fair flesh, to be cut off and taken / In what part of your body pleaseth me. ANTONIO. Content, in faith; I'll seal to such a bond, / And say there is much kindness in the Jew.” (actul 1, scena 3) 5. “SHYLOCK. (…) A pound of man's flesh taken from a man / Is not so estimable, profitable neither, / As flesh of muttons, beefs, or goats. I say, / To buy his favour, I extend this friendship” (actul 1, scena 3) 6. “ANTONIO. Hie thee, gentle Jew. / Exit SHYLOCK / The Hebrew will turn Christian: he grows kind. BASSANIO. I like not fair terms and a villain's mind.” (actul 1, scena 3) 7. “LAUNCELOT. (…) To be rul'd by my conscience, I should stay / with / the Jew my master, whoGod bless the mark!- is a kind of / devil; / and, to run away from the Jew, I should be ruled by the fiend, / who- saving your reverence!- is the devil himself. Certainly / the Jew is the very devil incarnation; and, in my conscience, my / conscience is but a kind of hard conscience to offer to counsel / me to stay with the Jew. The fiend gives the more friendly / counsel. I will run, fiend; my heels are at your commandment; I will run. (actul 2, scena 2) 8. “LAUNCELOT. (…) My master's a very Jew. Give him a present! Give him a halter. I / am famish'd in his service; you may tell every finger I have with / my ribs. (…) Here comes the man. To him, father, for I am a Jew, if I / serve the Jew any longer. (…) To be brief, the very truth is that the Jew, having done / me wrong (…)” (actul 2, scena 2) 9. “LANCELOT. The old proverb is very well parted between my / master Shylock and you, sir: you have the grace of God, sir, and he hath / enough. BASSANIO. Thou speak'st it well.” (actul 2, scena 2)
